Pr. 25:25: “As cold water to a weary soul, so is good news from a far country.”
I have good news. Jesus is coming back for us!
“Behold, I am coming quickly!” Rev. 22:7
“Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.” James 5:7-8
We must establish our hearts, to choose Him once and for all; and wait patiently on our reward. Like the crop, long-awaited, He will return.
Rev. 21:1-5 tells us, “Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also, there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
No more death. No more pain. No more tears. If we but patiently endure while on this pilgrimage in this foreign land, our reward will be given. Sometimes our lives can be painful and even feel consuming, but we can trust in the Word that is proven, that is pure, and that endures forever. God says He will make all things new. His return and our great reward will redeem all the pain we’ve experienced in this life.
We must find the strength to trust Him in all things. He has plans for our lives, and more importantly for our eternity, that are perfect. We must allow Him to be the refuge for us in this life, patiently enduring and trusting in Him. If we do that, we will dwell in the place where there is no more curse. Our pain will be over and we will be surrounded by the glory of God for eternity.
Be ready. The King is coming!
Enjoy the refreshingly great news,
